I was able to install updated extensions and a theme today - probably before the update but not sure. Both machines give download error -228 ONLY for these items. Downloaded Adobe Reader 8.1 OK Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Got to Get more Extensions (or Themes) 2.Install a Theme/Extension 3. Get error message
please try to follow these suggestions and report results here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions_-_Firefox#Download_Error_-228
Marco tried your suggestion yesterday while googling problem - failed - when I went to Add-Ons/Browse/Misc - I clicked on MiniMap Sidebar, when to the Install icon and did as instructed - this downloads 17605.html. Tried another same. Tried this morning with Personal menu (same tab) and get personal_menu-3.0.8-fx.xpi. This installed properly. Tried again with MiniMap Sidebar - same result - get html download
how is your Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network -> cache set up now? what firewall / antivirus / antispyware are you using? are you still getting error -228?
Other possibilities include mirrors that are very busy due to the release of 18.104.22.168 (they typically serve both extensions & the app itself), or a new mirror which is misconfigured. MiniMap installs for me.
Tried MiniMap on both laptop and PC - both now work
